A man who passed away following a collision on Lansdown Road, Cheltenham on Friday (17 December), has been described by family and friends as 'incomparable'.
In an emotional tribute, the family and friends of 32-year-old Dan Beames, of Bishops Cleeve, have remembered his loyalty, humour and passion. He suffered serious injuries in the collision and died the following day.
Speaking about the shock and pain at his death, they said:
"On behalf of Daniel's family and friends, we would like to say thank you for people's kind words of love and support.
"Daniel Mark Beames, well known as Beamer, was charismatic, loyal and passionate. He was a proud man, quirky, with the greatest of morals.
"Daniel was the king of practical jokes and puns. Always going out of his way to prank someone for the entertainment of himself and others around him. He was constantly up to mischief, but had the persona, charm and quick-wittedness to get away with anything.
"He didn't live to work. He worked to live. A great storyteller and traveller.
"Dan was radiant. Incomparable. A gentle man with so much love inside of him. Whether one on one, or in a group of people, he was a pleasure to be around.
"What has happened to Dan has sent immense shock and pain throughout his friendship circles and family. Dan left this world as the most wonderful partner, step dad, son, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin and friend. He left a print on all who crossed his path.
"Everyone should be more Beamer.
"Rest easy pal."
